Among skin care treatments, Botox and Dysport have each revolutionised our methods of dealing with aging skin. They are popular and common mainly due to their effectiveness in reducing the signs of aging, in particular, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
Both treatments share fundamentals. They share a common active ingredient, essentially a purified form of the botulinum toxin, which has been shown to reduce the communication between nerves and a muscle’s tendency to contract. Both are administered through an injection. And both have the ability to renew and invigorate the look of your skin, through the reduction of wrinkles.
The difference between the two is subtle. The molecules of Dysport are somewhat more varied in their size, which results in them being able to spread through skin and muscle more broadly. This can make Dysport preferable for treating larger skin areas, such as foreheads. Botox, with its more standardised molecule size, is arguably more effective on smaller areas.
This difference also impacts upon the effectiveness of the treatment. The molecules of Dysport are less likely to promote the growth of antibodies, which plague the users of Botox, as they tend to make the treatment less effective over time.
However, the methods of use are identical. They both require injection service from your local clinic, and both can reduce the look of wrinkles and crow’s feet.
As a standard, reliable treatment, Botox and Dysport have few equals, and at Hills Dental Care in Castle Hill, we use our sterile and clinical environment to provide this service to clients throughout the North Shore.
